A blend of Margaret River and Clare Valley fruit.

It smells rather light on the oak this wine, which is something of a departure for the Taylors Chardonnay style. Old oak too, judging by the hint of hessian in there. Not the biggest fan of that oak.

The palate though is like a tin of Golden Circle pineapple juice such is its richness and fruit-forward nature. Super juicy, though with raw, pokey acid edges. A hard wine for me to like perhaps, though that rich fruit will likely attract plenty of shiny medals and such... 15.5/86
